Treating Your Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic Amidst State and Local Orders
Wednesday, 25 March 2020
Should you stay open or shouldn’t you?  This is a personal and business decision only you can make.  The FCA interpretation of Executive Order 20-72 is that only medically unnecessary, non-urgent or non-emergency procedures or surgeries are prohibited.  This does NOT include chiropractic care.  The Governor’s latest Executive Order falls squarely in line with CMS’s announcement on March 15, 2020, to take measures to preserve essential medical supplies and personal protective equipment necessary to respond to this emergency.

The medical care prohibited under this order is:
Elective or non-medically necessary surgical procedures;
Surgical procedures that can be postponed without putting the patient’s immediate health, safety or well-being at risk;
Medical procedures that would consume personal protective equipment, that can be postponed without putting the patient’s immediate health, safety or well-being at risk

As they provide this essential support, chiropractors share the public health responsibility of slowing the transmission of COVID-19. For those who continue to see urgent cases, ACA has recommended that DCs employ strict hygienic practices at every point of patient contact and keep up to date with prevention recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The association has also urged chiropractors to closely monitor state and local health authorities and to comply with any relevant guidance or mandates.
